    This place is wonderful. The kids really loved this place, especially the hands-on bubble exhibit.

    My son loves this place. The fire truck and the ambulance are big hits. The temporary exhibits have been great thus far. We bought an annual membership so we can go as often as we like. The staff at the cafeteria are very friendly.
